Default Arguing the absolute toss about videogames

Let's try and genuinely annoy each other with completely spurious bullshit arguments. First one to get legit mad loses. I will definitely lose. OK you start.

No game should have an easy mode.

Oh, this one's easy. The answer lies in a previous madhair60 thread, even:

I think the placement and behavior of the robot fish in the first Sonic The Hedgehog game is reasonable.

Indie games without a publisher are the cultural equivalent of vanity press book self-publishing

Easy mode/no easy mode was the topic for one of the most cantankerous and unpleasant threads in TT history.

Roguelikes are what indie devs who are bad at level design make.

All video games are bad.

All anime video games are less bad because they are kind of anime but they are still bad because they aren't just anime.

All media is bad. Except anime.

All media is the worst. Even anime.

Rock n Roll Racing is the alpha and omega of racing games. THEY GOT "BORN TO BE WILD" ON THE SOUNDTRACK.

They should stop making games that I am not personally interested in. I've invested a lot of time and money into this hobby over the years and these companies owe me big time.

Man, "Jawas in Traffic Cones" would be a great name for a Black Mages cover band.

All old adventure games with perma-death and missable items are complete bullshit, and anything from before LucasArts perfected the formula is best ignored.

If you think anything on the Genesis can stand alongside the best of the SNES' library you've been deluding yourself for decades. I mean it has some pretty good games but come on

The first Zelda is so boring. Oh try bombing literally every corner of the game in hopes there's a door there, the grind for more bombs so you can keep going. Plus, always only 3 hearts on a reset? The game is grindy as hell and the only reason people have a fond opinion of the game is misplaced nostalgia

3D is the worst thing to happen to video games and especially platformers. Precision platforming will only ever be good in 2D.

Also, many first-person games make me motion sick, and I resent them for reminding me that my body is made of meat and that we will all die one day.
